NEEDS A CALM RESIDENT DOG OF A SIMILAR SIZE
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
LOVING PAWRENTS WHO WILL HELP HER ADJUS AND BECOME THE PRINCESS SHE WAS MEANT TO BE.
Gemma is an ex breeding 7 year old Cocker Spaniel that is still very much a work in progress as she adjusts to being loved in a big new world. She is a nervous, quiet dog who can hide behind the sofa for much of the day if scared or unsure. Gemma loves food which is always helpful when helping her to trust new people and her surroundings. Not having had good or regular food before she is quite the thief and will take anything that has been left about.
Gentle Gemma as she is known in her foster home will take any food offered from your hand gently. She is an adorable dog that will become a loving companion given time and patience. Since a more confident foster dog has arrived in the home Gemma has been coming out from behind the sofa and spending more time in the crate (her safe space) with the door open and will go from one place to another following the other dog. Gemma does most of her toileting outside in the garden or on her walks.
Gemma is very wary of people but will let them pet her but will then go back to her hiding place when she has had enough. She has been fine when there have been children in the house but doesn’t hang about for long before going back to her safe space. Gemma will come out of her hiding place to see what’s going on before going back in an attempt to be brave before her nerves get the better of her.
Not cat or small furry tested
Gemma is good in the home generally except when there is food about. Please don’t leave food around unattended or it will vanish. This is not her fault this happens because she didn’t ever know where her next meal was coming from as no one loved her enough to care and treat her like the princess she wants to be.
Since Gemma has had both her vaccinations, we have been able to take her on walks which she enjoys. She will now come to us for us to put her harness on her when were ready to go.
Gemma needs a calm resident dog of a similar size to show her that humans and the world is a good place and no one will hurt her any more. She needs older dog savvy children who will not put pressure on her to be petted or played with. She needs a quiet home with understanding owners who will help her adjust to her new world.
Vaccinated, microchipped and up to date flea and wormer
Fostered in Port Talbot area of South Wales
Gemma comes with 5 weeks free Agria pet insurance
